Letters and emails from our clients Email your testimonial to us *
We'd love to hear from you!


From T.H., male, 46 years old - January 31, 2007

I just wanted to say thank you and share with others (especially the men) what a difference colonics have made for my quality of life. As a former professional football player, I grew accustomed to my body having constant aches and pain. Surprisingly, by doing colonics on a regular basis, I not only now live pain free, but I'm less depressed and noticeably happier. Colonics actually make me feel lighter and free. As an athlete I was always open a healthy, legal edge on the competition; I firmly believe I found one against unhappily aging.

From V. Reed, female, 56 years old - January 8, 2007

I've been a client of Linda's for over 10 years - I don't know what I would have done without her unconditional caring, kindness, and wealth of knowledge she has given me over the years - Through her guidance, diet, exercise, detoxing and a monthly maintenance colonic - I was able to overcome years of herbal laxative abuse - It has changed the quality of my life - Thank you Linda

from Sara L, female, 28 years old - January 6, 2007

I have been meaning to write a testimonial for almost two years!  Colonics at Ventura Center For Healing have enhanced my health immensely. I used to get sick 4-6 times per year, and since I have been getting colonics, I have narrowed my frequency of sickness to only once per year.  Every once in a while when I feel a cold coming on, I get a colonic and the symptoms disappear.  It is amazing.  Also, my skin has improved. I used to have frequent acne breakouts and since I have been going, my skin is smoother, softer, and acne-free.  I also feel lighter, healthier, and more alert.  Colonics have done nothing but enhance my life and Linda and her staff help you feel comfortable during and after the procedure.  I highly recommend Ventura Center for Healing and I drive 50 miles (roundtrip) every month and it is so worth it!

from G. Garcia, male, 64 years old - July 19, 2006

Dear Ventura Center staff,

My wife maintains your website and you would think I should know all there is to know about colonics… but I don’t. I hear my wife tell me for years how important a clean colon is and that no matter how “good” you eat and no matter how many bowel movements a day you have, you always need and can benefit from regular colonics. But I didn’t listen until I was doubled over in pain with gas and cramping and unable to have a bowel movement. She begged me to call for an appointment but I was stubborn and just thought the idea of a colonic was awful. This went on for over a week until I could not stand the pain any longer. I want to tell you how much relief I had after my first colonic. The experience was comfortable and relaxing. The horrible breath I had is almost gone now and even my taste for food has returned. I will continue to get a series of colonics until I feel I can go on a regular maintenance program.

from DP, female, 47 years old - June 14, 2006

I am a 47 year old female. I was talking to a friend from work that had been to the Ventura Center and she was talking about how great she felt. I thought about it for a couple of weeks and decided to go. I work 2 jobs and 2 days a week my day starts at 6:00am and I don't get home until 12:45am the next morning. I was feeling tired and run down, so when I came to the center I needed some relief. The Ventura Center made the whole thing not so scary and after I left there I was ready to take on the day. I have not weighed myself but I sleep better and my system is now regular. I would like to give a HIGH five to Linda and her staff.

from RA, female, 26 years old - March 15, 2006

A friend of mine introduced me to Ventura Center for Healing. I got my first set of 3 colonics 6 months ago. I was 233 pounds when I started, and am now at 174 pounds, and working my way down. I feel great! Linda and her staff were supportive and made me feel very comfortable. I have noticed a huge change in my diet, plus am a lot more energized. I have referred family and friends and I know that getting a colonic is one of the best things I have done in my life. Keep up the great work Linda and crew!!!!!!!!!!!!!

from RJ, male, 47years old, Los Angeles  - October 19, 2005

I am a 47 yr old male, about 6'0" tall. I began colon hydrotherapy approximately 16 months ago. It may be a cliché, but I am serious when I say that Linda actually gave my life back to me. I am that serious. I was 260 pounds and unhappy. With continuous sessions, I have dropped down to a solid 175 pounds. I dropped from a 42-44 inch waist to a 32-34. Some shirts I would wear a XL or even XXL. I now wear either a large or sometimes even medium. When some people that I have not seen for a while see me they really cannot believe it. All they can say is "You look so good, I can't believe it's you!"

When I say my life has been given back to me just do not take my word for it. Let's look at the facts: 80 pound loss, 10 inches off the waist, smaller sizes in clothes. Also, my doctor discovered that my high blood pressure has returned to normal. No more blood pressure medicine. Also, my heartburn completely vanished.

Now I did have to do my part too. I changed my eating habits so I could facilitate the losing weight. Linda and her staff will do their part, yet I had to work at it too. But without Linda's help, I could not have done it on my own. I tried many times before. I never, at 47 yrs old, ever thought I could get back to the same weight I was when I was 22. And I feel like it too. All the things you hear are true: more vitality, clearer skin, less irritable, etc. Tap into Linda's wealth of knowledge and I know you will get whatever results you want. I sure did!

from OC, female - August 20, 2005

Discover the secret that makes some people and celebrities feel great and look younger because they are removing toxins from their bodies. Colonic therapy gave me a new beginning in life. I acquired extra energy and a new spirit for exercising. After several  treatments, the aches and pains in my back diminished  considerably. My face took on a healthier glow. I noticed changes in my digestive and respiratory system. I recommend colonic therapy for anyone desiring to feel healthier.

from TE, female - April 27, 2005

I first went to the Ventura Center for Healing because I had changed my eating habits. A friend told me that a colonic would clean out all of the old "stuff" that was in my system. Even when I got a colonic after I changed my eating habits to a healthier lifestyle, I still noticed a huge difference in my energy level. This has been especially helpful since I do practice Reiki and Crystal work. I would recommend this for anyone that feels a little "heavy", "lazy" or just unmotivated. You will just feel lighter and more energized.  :)    Thank you so much!!

from DC, Female, 38 years old  - December 2004

Hemorrhoids were something I dealt with for years. I had tried every over the counter medication made but - no relief. When I started getting colonics at  The Ventura Center for Healing, I had no idea that a clean colon would impact the hemorrhoid suffering, but it did. I had hemorrhoids at least one a month, sometimes more. They ruined my whole day! I started getting colonics every week for a month or two, then reduced the number to once a month. I have only had three outbreaks in the last 2.5 years! I am in a maintenance mode schedule for the colonics, so I pay attention to what I put in my body and have a colonic at least once a month.

I am a 38 year old woman, no children, 122 pounds, 5'1". I exercise regularly: Tae Bo and Yoga. The colonic is a perfect compliment to my lifestyle.

from AG, Female, 41 years old,  Santa Clarita, CA - December 2004

For about 15 years, I have struggled with many different physical problems. I went to several doctors; most told me that my problems were related to overeating, stress and lack of exercise. I had one doctor tell me that I was just tremendously constipated, and that I needed to take laxatives for about 6 months and then come back again to see him. I was given pills for pain, concoctions for cleansing, and names of programs to attend. I tried everything, including the extreme "laxative therapy" program from the doctor. I was tested for everything under the sun. Nothing. At 40 pounds over weight, I was told I was obese and needed diet pills and a restricted diet.

I first heard about colonics from my boyfriend. He claimed that if were to go through a few hydrotherapy sessions, that most of my symptoms would disappear. I finally gave in; I found Linda at the Ventura Center for Healing through her web site. I wish I could convey to you the excitement and energy that I now have after a few treatments at the Ventura Center. I no longer have headaches, lower back pain, pain in my lower left side, the daily nausea and the constant constipation and diarrhea. No longer am I constantly dehydrated, and unable to quench my extreme thirst. My moods are so much better; I was always depressed, my sex drive was gone, I did not want to hang out with my friends, and I had no motivation to do the fun things I used to crave to do. The golf ball size lump about six inches above my belly button is gone, and so is the feeling like I have a "wad of cotton" in my throat has left. What has really surprised me is that I no longer have the constant mucus in my chest and throat and my asthma is almost non-active. After years of being unable to concentrate on simple daily tasks, I now feel more alert, energetic, and my attitude is more positive. Every day I notice little things about myself that are getting better; I had been so unhealthy for so long I did not know all the things that were wrong.

Since beginning the colonic treatments, I have more motivation to exercise and eat better. I was never an "overeater", but no longer do I have the intense cravings for fatty, salty and sweet foods. I am able to exercise because I now have the energy to keep up an exercise program. I have lost ten pounds, my tummy is no longer bloated and is flatter. With the help of the colonics, I have the motivation to get healthier!

from BW,  51 yr old female - August 14, 2004

Dear Linda,

I had been swollen and impacted in the colon for weeks. My skin was broken out, the hormones raged, and I felt 5 pounds heavier from all the “sludge”. My body seemed to have shut down.

I was new to California and had no idea where to turn. I found you through a network of referrals. After the colonic, I felt energetic, bright, and clear headed again. The bounce returned to my step. The hormones seemed more in check.

Also, thanks for the music during the procedure, it was relaxing and fun.

from JD, 39 yr old female - February 24, 2004

My name is JD. I'm a 39yr. old woman. One day I ran into a friend that I haven't seen in awhile and he looked so revived and healthy. He informed me that he started getting colonics and briefed me on the procedure. I've been suffering constipation since childhood. So, I decided that I wanted to get one and began researching and was referred to Ventura Center by my local health food & herb store. The day of my appointment I was experiencing influenza symptoms but decided to keep my appointment anyway. During the procedure something amazing was happening!!!! My influenza symptoms were going away. I felt immediate healing as the waste was leaving my body. After the procedure I felt fresh and light as a feather realizing that this is the way that I'm suppose to feel. How could my flu have gone away? When it usually takes 3-7 days, and sometimes weeks. Now I too get compliments on how vibrant I look!!!!!

from AJ, 28 yr old female - February 23, 2004


When I was fresh out of High School, I experimented with a lot of eating disorders and took laxatives. My body became very messed up and I was in and out of the hospital for a year. I had extremely bad stomach cramps and my body didn't process food correctly. I started getting colonics with you 8 years ago, and for all of those 8 years I have never been more healthy.

from BM, 28 yr old female - February 2004

Dear Linda:

I discovered colonics over two years ago, and I have never been the same since! Though I was very nervous at first, I gave it a chance, and I'm so thankful that I did. My fiancé thought I was absolutely nuts at the time, but once he saw the difference it made in my life, he soon joined me. Linda allowed us to feel comfortable and relaxed about the whole situation. I'm so glad that we found The Ventura Center for Healing. Colonics have such an impact on the overall well being of my system. After a series of colonics, my skin glows, my tummy feels soft and flat again, I have better concentration, better sex drive, and last but certainly not least, my cravings seem to disappear. I recommend colonics to all my friends and family, and I will continue to get them when I feel like my body needs it. Having a colonic is like starting over again. It makes you think twice before putting all those toxins in your body.

from MR, 40 yr old male - November 1, 2003

Dear Linda:

I was referred to your center by a friend who swore by your colonics. I was extremely interested in having a colonic but was practically terrified. My fear was that being a cancer survivor this process could interfere with my good health. I did some reading on the safety of colonics as it related to one's immune system. From what I read everything was positive. Not only was it positive but supportive of one "cleansing their bowels". It only made sense for me to try one.

I have since had four colonics. I learned firsthand that the process simply entails "rinsing" of my bowels with water. I must state that I have never felt better in my life. Although it sounds gross, but having decades of fecal matter sitting in my bowels made me feel lethargic and just not feeling as well as I could.

Another reason why I am having colonics is for weight loss and maintenance. I am so pleased that each time I have a colonic I end up losing probably two pounds. For the first time in my life I am content with my weight.

I also feared the procedure itself thinking it would be messy, unsanitary and embarrassing. I was impressed that the procedure was more clean and sanitary that I could have hoped for. You (and your staff) make people feel comfortable during this process.

from MT, female - October 31, 2003

Dear Linda:

After going to the gastroenterologist for years and combating problems with constipation, stomach pain, fatigue, and headaches and seeing no improvements, I finally decided to visit the Ventura Center for Healing for colon hydrotherapy. After just the first colonic, I felt amazing! I was less bloated and felt altogether better and more energetic! Since then, I have proceeded to get colonics on a monthly basis. Since then, Linda has also gotten me started on aloe vera tablets, which have been a god-sent! They completely relieve my constipation unlike even prescription medication that I have ever taken! The other day, I actually ran out and bought another brand from a health food store. To my surprise, they didn't work at all! They gave me cramps and made me feel horrible! That day, I ran down to the Ventura Center for Healing and got their brand and felt better immediately! I have tried everything known to man for years and the only thing that works is the colonics and the aloe vera tablets from the Ventura Center for Healing. Thanks Linda!

from JJ, female - October 14, 2003

Hi Linda,

A couple of months ago I inquired about ideas for curing heartburn...  It was suggested to me that I take 1/2 tsp. of Megadophilus 1-2x per day with a little bit of water, with a slight gargle before swallowing. It worked!! It worked within a day, and I took it for about a month. Now I only take it occasionally, 1 -2x per week.

from Ms. L, female, 69 yrs - July 24, 2003

Dear Linda:

It took me over a year before I got up the nerve to try the "Liver Cleanse". When I did, I was totally amazed at what came out of my body. The first 3 times I saw hundreds of stones that looked like lemon seeds. The 4th through 7th time the stones were larger, some were the size of small marbles. The 8th time the stones were darker and much larger. Some stones were the size of medium marbles and one was the size of a large marble.

Since the cleanse my digestion and elimination have improved greatly.

from T.F., female, 31 yrs - July 1, 2003

Dear Linda:

I was referred to Ventura Center for Healing by a friend for colonics. Before doing colonics, I had dark circles and puffiness under my eyes and I was tired all the time. I have also suffered from irritable bowel syndrome
for several years and the treatment prescribed by my doctor has failed. After only 2 treatments 1 week apart along with taking the herbs prescribed the circles and darkness under my eyes was gone and I have significantly increased energy. I've been told by several people how much my skin glows. As for the irritable bowel syndrome, the aloe vera herbs has taken away the heartburn, constipation and relieved the colon spasms.

from LG , female, 39 yrs - May 20, 2003

At 39, I was too young to be so tired and experience heart palpitations. I was gaining weight rapidly, which was not the norm for me. I had been to see my physician and did the blood tests, diet changes, a little exercise and took one multi-purpose vitamin and nothing helped. The doctor said I was fine, it was not early menopause and then changed his diagnosis and chalked it up to stress, but I've have stress for over 10 years and never felt so crummy. It was like a poisoning of my system, the vitamins did not help me, energy pills had almost no effect on me and my hair was dry and thinning. I'd heard about colonics to cleanse the system and decided to give it a try after swallowing three different brands of "cleansers" I bought at the vitamin store to no avail. After my first colonic with Linda my energy level went up 100% and even my vision seemed clearer. I actually felt lighter on my feet. My system is moving more regularly now and I signed up for a series of 5 colonics close together and I feel so much better. I now believe that the colon plays a huge part of daily and long-term health.

from M.J. , female - April 16, 2003

Dear Linda:

The reason or reason’s rather why I went and had a Colon Hydrotherapy Treatment was I get severe migraine headaches frequently to the point wear I’m either laid up in bed, vomiting or popping pills. I rarely have bowel movements. My energy level has been dropping a lot over the past 5 years. I’m now (was) to the point where I needed a nap everyday. I do not (didn’t) sleep well at all. I wake up several times through the night and I have some nights when I wake up “I’m up” and that’s it. I’d just lie there or get up and start doing stuff in hopes I’d get tired again and go back to sleep.  Aside from those things, which have a huge impact on your life I take good care of my health. I eat right, lift weights 3 to 4 times a week do cardio 4-5 times a week and try to get as much rest as possible.


April 11, 2003 was my first treatment.  Linda made the whole experience comfortable which made it even more worth it.  After I left Linda’s office that day I felt totally “RELAXED”!  Not tired just “RELAXED” like all of my stress had been washed out of my body.  That night I slept like a log the whole night!  It’s now been 6 days since my first treatment.  I’ve had only 2 very faint Migraine Headaches that easily went away after getting some food in my system - NO pills. I’ve been sleeping full nights. I have a great deal more energy. I’ve made it everyday without a nap. I weighed myself the day of the treatment before I went and I weighed myself today. I lost 2.5LBS in 6 days!!  I’m actually surprised and thrilled that after just 1 treatment I’m already feeling such great things. I was disappointed that I only had 1 bowel movement since the treatment until Linda said people usually don't have much of a bowel movement between the first 3 colonic sessions.


I had my second treatment today and I feel great!!!  I’m even going to take a 2 hours exercise class that I haven’t been able to do because lack of energy. The class is in the evenings and I’m usually a zombie by that time.


Anyone who is looking into having a Colon Hydrotherapy treatment I say “GO FOR IT” you’ll love what it will do for you!! I highly recommend Linda’s office! She makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. You’ll feel like you’ve known her for years and tell her everything.

from M.G., female, 31 yrs - March 26, 2003

Dear Linda:

I have had problems ever since I can remember. I would go days without a bowel movement. One time in Junior High the pain was so bad I passed out. I went to doctor after doctor and all they could say is that it was my diet. I was an athlete and watched everything that I ate, so that theory was incorrect.

I had heard about colonics before but thought that it would be painful and very unpleasant. So I lived with the pain for most of my life. I originally decided to go because my fiancé had been having major problems with bloating, constipation, etc. So I went to support him, thinking if he could do it then I can too. To my surprise it was not at all like I thought. No smell, no mess, very little discomfort (compared to what I was going thru before this was a breeze), and with great results. I now have bowel movements regularly 3 to 4 times a day, feel great, energized, no more headaches, I’ve lost about 10 pounds so far. I would recommend it to everyone and do.

Thank you Linda, Michelle and the Ventura Center for Healing for all you have done for both my fiancé and myself.  We are like new people :)

coming 2 months, lost 10 lbs

from P.B. , female, 33 yrs - March 25, 2003

Dear Linda:

After 2 Colonoscopy's and a slew of medicines from the Gastro Doctor, I was at wits end and STILL not feeling any better.  I was suffering from constant nauseous and diarrhea on a daily basis.  I learned from the Doctor "you just have a bout of IBS" well...that's easy for you to say Doc...I HURT!  That's when my life changed.  Linda Grossman....I cannot THANK YOU ENOUGH!  I had a series of 3 colonics (close together) and guess what??  I felt fantastic. My nauseous stopped, my diarrhea stopped and I was able to eat green leafy vegetables again.  Knowing my body as well as I do.......I see Linda every 8-10 weeks for a colonic. I have not taken any meds since my 1st colonic. What a new way of life for me. 

Thank you Linda. I will be seeing you forever!

from A.O., male, 30 yrs - March 14, 2003

Dear Linda:

I was having severe lower abdomen pains and was constipated. I felt like my stomach was going to burst. This went on for a month straight. I went to the doctor several times with no results. I finally could not take it anymore and my friend suggested a colonic. I called Linda and the rest is history. I am regular 2 to 3 times a day. I lost 10 lbs and feel 100% better. I recommend it to everyone. It is really an easy process. I thought it would hurt and be uncomfortable but, compared to the pain and suffering I was going through before, this was easy. The staff at the Ventura Center for Healing are knowledgeable and they really make you feel comfortable. Just do it, trust me you won't regret it. Thanks again.

from CS, female, 25 yrs - November 12, 2002

Dear Linda:

I’ve been coming the center since August 2002. I feel lighter and more energetic. My face had dark spots near my jawbone. These spots are beginning to fade. I suppose the toxins that feed these spots are being eliminated - slowly but surely. I’m very pleased with my overall level of health since I began coming to the center.

I tried emu oil and it works wonders. I was preparing to burn some rock incense one evening. After I made the fire in a small urn, I forgot how hot it was and I picked it up. My pointer finger and my thumb were completely burned. I didn’t know what to do because they were turning red. I applied emu oil to these areas. The next day there were no blisters. After two days, there was no pain or tenderness – and still no blisters. I was so pleased.  I started thinking of other ways to use this amazing product. About a week after this I had the unfortunate experience of getting one hemorrhoid. I used the emu oil on it and within three days it was gone. I have been recommending this product to everyone I know.  It works wonders.

Dear Linda:


About four years ago I had a sigmoidoscopy. The doctor's report stated that I had several small polyps. No polyps were removed at that time.


I have been having colonics about every six weeks since the sigmoidoscopy exam. When I had a colonoscopy about a month ago the report read "excellent colon, no polyps".

from S.J., female - October 5, 2002

Dear Linda:


I did 5 colonics close together and now I do one colonic per month. I am 43 years old and the reason I started the colonic sessions (was because) I had problems with being regular on a daily basis. Having the colonics once a month has made a difference in my life. I am regular 2 to 3 times a day and my husband tells me all the time how beautiful my skin looks. My eyesight is much clearer and no more painful headaches. I am much more conscious about what I put in my body and my weight has come down tremendously. I recommend the colonics to everyone that want to make a difference in their lives.

I would like to thank the staff at Ventura Center for Healing for making their services available to the public.

from R.M.,  female, 45 yrs - October 13, 2002

Dear Linda:


I'm so glad I found you!  My IBS pain is gone and I keep it under control with a colonic every 6 weeks.  It's been more than 5 years since I learned about colonics and I believe in them so much because they've not only helped my IBS condition, they've also helped my overall health.  I used to suffer from frequent colds, sore throats, and acne ... and because of these colonics, I stay healthy all over!  It's amazing, but I truly believe it's because of the healing powers of a "clean colon!"


Thanks, Linda!  You're smile and warm approach to the experience is what makes Ventura Center THE BEST place to heal the body and soul!

Linda saved my life! I had a problem being regular my whole adult life and had a particular problem with gas. I went to Linda on high recommendation from my fitness coach and I am so glad I did! I am totally regular now and  my gas has completely gone away. I thought that was something I  was just going to have to live with. Thank God, it's not!  She also gave me some health tips on my diet that helped tremendously. She and everyone who works there is a true gem! Thanks.

I am a 48 year old female and I work out 4 times a week. Last year I was having problems with not being able to lift my arm or do any type of arm exercise. I went to the doctor and was told there was nothing that could be done and I would have to live with this the rest of my life. Also, I was told to stop lifting weights. I told Linda about what was going on and she suggested I use Emu oil. The rest is history.....I have not had any pain with my arm since that time. Thank you Linda!

from C.J. - January 14, 2002

My name is C.J. and I am a 37 year old gym owner/fitness trainer. I began having colonics because I was taking large amounts of pain medication for post surgery back pain. I noticed my eyes yellowing and that I had severe constipation problems. I had read somewhere of the great detoxification benefits received from colonics. I had had one colonic several years before, which had been a painful and messy experience, but due to my reading of the benefits of this therapy, I decided to keep an open mind and try a new therapist. Linda Grossman of the Ventura Center for Healing had been recommended to me by one of my clients at my health club, who described Linda as a caring, informed and gentle person who provided an effective and pain free procedure.

I started having colonics on a regular basis (as recommended by Linda) and immediately experienced a feeling of well-being and of being cleansed. After just three treatments, I noticed my eyes became whiter, my skin clearer and I became very regular.

I highly recommend to all those concerned about living a healthier lifestyle to regularly cleanse their colon by the method of colon hydrotherapy. It's a great compliment to good nutrition and a regular exercise schedule to achieve a fit and healthy you.

from A.W. - November 29, 2001

Thought I would give you a progress report, but first of all I want to say thank you so much. I feel like you saved my life. Three months of no success on my own brought me seeking your help. And help you did! I have kept off the 15 pounds I had gained – I know it was all poop!

On November 7, I had a barium enema at Kaiser. Right afterwards, I started filling back up. On Friday November 16, I started calling Kaiser at noon. I had never been called with my results, was feeling poisoned again, and was completely frustrated. After a lot of screaming, I received a phone call at 7:30 that night from another Dr at Kaiser, who said that the results were negative and that I was fine-nothing wrong. I told her that was great, except that nothing had worked again for the last 10 days and I was gaining weight again and feeling horrible. She told me she would set up a sigmoidoscopy asap. That weekend I thought I was going to explode, called your office, but found that no one was available until the next Tuesday. On Tuesday I went for the sigmoidoscopy, and again they found nothing wrong. Finally spoke with my sister who is a geriatrician with Kaiser-Orange County and she has put me on a pretty strict regimen which seems to be working. I have had a smile on my face each day since last Saturday!

If a person has not been through something like this, they can not relate at all. People would look at me like I must be crazy – 3 months. I was told that was impossible. I told them it was true, and frightening. I also told the LNP at Kaiser that I had had colonics to try to get the stuff out of me. They couldn’t stress enough how horrible they are, how unsafe they are, etc. I asked them what Kaiser had been willing to do for me – absolutely NOTHING. They told me that it is not good for the flora of the colon to have that procedure. I told them it was not good for the flora of my colon to be so impacted for 3 months.

So now I have referred a friend to you. I appreciate so much what you did for me. You also made me feel like I wasn’t crazy, and you showed true compassion to me as your client, which I really appreciate. Kaiser treated me like I was taking up space. As I allow my body to get back on track and “relearn” its function, I will keep in mind the idea of quarterly maintenance, to change with the seasons. Thank You again for all of your help.
